The leader of the Labor party in the U.K. and wishing to be the U.K.’s next Prime minister
Listen to part of this report from the BBC which you can find on line (for now!) and I will put a link to it on my website
And if you only followed this as a guide you would think he was a nice guy who means well
However there is NO mention that he was a member of the communist party and that he wants to disarm the UK
Just a couple of small points
Jeremy Corbyn’s election in September 2015 as Labour leader, at the age of 66, counted as one of the biggest upsets in British political history.
His re-election to the post almost a year later was not such a surprise but could prove even more momentous in terms of Labour’s direction in the coming years and the future course of British politics.
Seeing off the challenge of Owen Smith, who had the backing of the majority of Labour MPs, has made Mr Corbyn, for the time being at least, seemingly unassailable and increased the likelihood that he will lead the opposition into the next general election – scheduled for 2020.
If that is the case, Mr Corbyn will be a highly influential figure during one of the most important political periods of the past 50 years – as the clock ticks down to the UK’s exit from the EU following the Brexit referendum vote.
To his critics, he is almost a caricature of the archetypal “bearded leftie”, an unelectable throwback to the dark days of the 1980s, when Labour valued ideological purity more than winning power.
But to his army of supporters he is the only honest man left in politics, someone who can inspire a new generation of activists, and make them believe that there is an alternative to the neo-liberal Thatcherite consensus that has let them down so badly.
